The Last Horsemen of New York Overview

During his mayoral campaign Bill deBlasio vowed to eliminate the New York carriage horse industry. Our cameras followed this story as the working class carriage drivers fought to save their historic industry. Opponents of the industry rocketed Mayor deBlasio to the top of the ticket and into City Hall, but making good on his promise proved harder than anyone expected.? The film follows carriage industry spokespeople Christina Hansen and Stephen Malone in their day to day struggle to fend off extinction. Leading the charge for the carriages in the media is well known actor and New York resident Liam Neeson. But a much broader story emerges about powerful interests against the common man and the role of secret unaccountable money that corrupts the political system.
